I’m so happy for the city of New Orleans! Just great people who deserve the happiness they’re feeling right now.
And it’s good to see Drew Brees finally get his…All the mediots talked about was how great Peyton Manning is. They overlooked the guy who’s been the most productive QB in the NFL over the past 4 years…in fact:
Since becoming a Saint in 2006, Drew Brees has thrown for 1359 more yards than Peyton Manning. The same amount of TDs, only 6 more INTs in 154 more attempts. And has a completion pct. of 66.85 to Manning’s 66.5. What I’m saying is…Brees has been the better QB.
I make no attempt to hide it. I LOVE that city & everything about it. I made some of the best friends & had some of the best times of my life. Those that have never been there…can’t possibly get it.
Actually, there’s a big difference between living there, and visiting. The city has a real “voodoo” that’s awesome, and beautiful, and no matter what the media tells you about crime and poverty…The people of New Orleans love their home. Their pains are not self-pity. They’re genuinely hurt by what’s happened to their city. They’re so proud of the laid back vibe. It’s just a VERY special place, and had the station I worked for not gone away…We’d probably have never left. I love New Orleans! It is where I would choose to retire. And someday, still hope to.
Although, going to the ‘Dome for games is a BLAST!…It still ain’t the Black Hole! :) But, I do own a Ricky Williams jersey from his rookie year!
Laissez les bons temps rouler!
Meanwhile…The search for the next gig continues! Good things are ahead. Thank you for all of the e-mails of support. Both here, and on Twitter/Facebook/Myspace.
